It's true that the population is growing at a worrying rate. There are things we can do about it like learning how to share resources more efficiently, waste less, and provide education about contraception. There's a correlation between literacy rate and birth rate. There are an increasing number of countries where the birth rate has fallen to below 2 births per woman.
I don't agree with statements like, 'some people shouldn't be allowed...' There certainly are many children being born who are not going to be looked after well. But you can't really stop someone from reproducing. Who can deny anyone their right to a family? I would rather say, 'some people need to be educated.'

Spoke to my mum today on skype. She'd bought a shake weight! This is after I drew her up a complete beginners bodyweight program. I really couldn't believe it, and I might have been a bit harsh. And no, I don't care that a footballers' wife uses the Shake Weight.
Although by the end of the conversation I convinced her to take it back to the shop and exchange it for a kettlebell
Overpopulation is a myth |
Did you know it's not the people that are a problem, quite the opposite (more people have meant better resources and standard of living for everyone). The problem is adequate distribution of resources. There is plenty, getting it to the people who need it from those who have it (us fat Americans) IS the problem...
Of course what we're sending them is not helping either... "How to make an entire world dependent on poor nutrient foods and make malnourishment AND starvation go hand in hand in 6 easy lessons"
The eyes of all hope in thee, O Lord: and thou givest them meat in due season.
Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.

Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
Don't forget to play!
Unfortunately, when you read the blog, they're still made out of sugar and cake... :-(

Can someone explain to me why, when the ocean water is nice and warm (well, warm for the Pacific) and the waves are fairly calm and the shore isn't too rocky...why are all these kids in effing wetsuits? Did someone put out a bulletin about the dangers of swimming un-suited? Is it to protect them from deadly solar radiation? Whyyyyyyy?
I mean, having to put the damn thing on...take it off...air it out. When I was a kid, kicking around the Orange County coast, I never had a wetsuit. Never! We just went in. It was cold...then you got used to it. So sad.
